I took my 95 Pontiac grand am to a mechanic and he told me I have either a crack or blown head gasket on my car and that why it runs hot. But when driving on the highway it stays at normal temperature...


sounds like you might have a problem with your cooling fans not working when you're driving on the expressway you have a constant flow of wind blowing through the radiator which keeps didn't include the Twin Cities dealer idle no airflow no fan blowing the car overheats

While driving my f150, cools just fine after 20 miles it starts to overheat at lights


Could be a fan clutch, sticking thermostat, or restriction in the cooling system including air in the system.

There is more airflow through the radiator on the highway !

Jeep overheats quickly at city driving , not at highway. and quickly cools down? had thermostat replaced. what could it be


city driving does not force air through the radiator like highway driving does. if it has overheated, suspect a blown head gasket caused by expansion of the head when warm rubbing against the gasket and tearing it. could be the water pump, pull a heater hose and start engine. if coolant blasts out, pump is working. caution!! coolant may be hot!!! if it trickles, you have a restriction or a bad pump. stupid question, you have coolant in the radiator, right?

Running hot all water going straight to overflow tank


Check the thermostat. If the upper hose does not feel very hot to the touch when the car is warmed up already, this indicates the thermostat is not opening, and therefore the water cannot circulate causing the overheating problem. Second possiblity is the radiator fan. If the car tends to overheat only on city driving it is a the radiator fan not coming on. This is either due to a bad radiator fan, blown fuse,bad relay, or a bad temperature sensor or temperature switch. If the car tends to overheat at highway speed, then it is the radiator being clogged up, and not letting enough water circulation when demand is at its highest which is high engine rpm.

Overheats when idoling, but not while moving


possibilities include: fan clutch, water pump going out, missing fan shroud or baffles in front end, clogged radiator fins or a/c condensor may need cleaned. Possibly stuck thermostat, low coolant level , and this can be caused by faulty radiator cap. Hope this helps!

When should the overdrive button on a 1995 Cougar be utilized and is it harmful to the transmission to drive this car in overdrive in the city?


I don't believe it will hurt anything to use it in the city unless it says not to in the owners manual. Over drive is ment to be used for highway driving. Myself i don't use it in the city just on the open road.
